So…here is a computer on regular Woot and a printer (not a computer) on Computers!Woot
I am confused.
It almost seems that the data plan alone is worth the c.$200. What am I missing?
If you are interested in an article that discusses life with a Chromebook, here’s a read for you.
you’ll only get 200 mb a month. nothing earth shattering.
Am intrigued by the 2 years but I am quite rural.
HP’s site says all Free 4G for two years deals have been upgraded to lifetime: NEW. 2 years upgraded to lifetime! Regardless of purchase date, your device has been upgraded to lifetime of free 4G! No action required by customers, upgrade is automatic.
Note that the free data is limited to 200MB/month, which is useful for checking email, but which will disappear quickly if you hit any data-intensive web pages (e.g. animated ads) or try to watch any videos.
If you are in an area with FreedomPop coverage, you would do better to buy a plain chromebook and a FreedomPop device which would give you at least 400MB/month free data forever, not just for two years.
But with only 200mb per MONTH, I’d use that up in a couple of days. So the question is, how much do you pay for more 4G use?
This is a great computer if you don’t need Windows programs. It has speedy browsing capabilities and is able to handle a lot of tabs being open at the same time. Great price.
Aye, there’s the rub. Thanks for pointing that out.
It would be a deal but T-Mobile isn’t available in my area. The nearest coverage is over 40 miles away.
The CNET review is for an old less-good model.
This one has the current cpu so it’s faster, plus 4gb ram instead of 2gb (so it’s better at handling a bunch of open tabs), plus it’s got a couple USB 3.0 ports, plus it’s got way better battery life, plus it’s got a 32gb ssd instead of a 16gb ssd.
This means it’s better (IMO) than the LTE version now offered new (which has only 16gb).
The only thing you miss with this one (or any refurb) is the free 2 years of 100gb Google Drive.
ps: Not sure, but I think if you buy a new one, sign up for the free Google storage, then return it, you keep the free Google storage and whoever buys it next doesn’t get it. (I could be wrong about this, so don’t count on it.)
I live in Cairo Egypy
can I use it there
I know I can not use the internet
but the computer I can use it in Egypt
You pretty much need the internet to set it up. Once it’s set up, you can do some work offline, but you really need internet access for this to be a viable tool. So, if you cannot use the internet, this is not for you. (Sorry.)
You can always use the wifi…
I SURE Egypt has WiFi and from there may be able to get to internet. So he could get it setup and use it normally. To me, 200MB monthly is at best about $2/mo value. So it’s not a biggie to give up on.
